Fighting in front of an estimated 94,000 fans at London’s Wembley Stadium, Fury (32-0-1, 23 knockouts) was stopped at 2:59 of the sixth round after landing two left jabs before the shot to Whyte’s jaw that stunned the fellow Brit.

Fury has now won his third straight fight by knockout and improved to 8-0-1 in lineal heavyweight championship fights.
